Chocolate and cream cheese- in other words, heaven in a muffin! These smelled incredible while baking, and were very good straight out of the oven. They were even better after spending a bit of time in the fridge. I added a little white icing on top and took 'em into work- gone in minutes. Thanks for a great recipe! (hint- don't overmix! I overzealously used my KitchenAide, and these came out a little dry. Hand mix just until moistened!!)
